TV show de­but for Donna Hay

Townsville Bulletin - - -

SWITCHED ON: Renowned Aus­tralian cook Donna Hay is launch­ing a TV cook­ing show on AUS­TAR’s The Life­style Chan­nel

pe­tite blonde dy­namo has qui­etly dom­i­nated the Aus­tralian cook­ing scene for the past 10 years – we read her best­selling cook­books, buy her pop­u­lar food mag­a­zines, and de­light our friends and fam­ily by fol­low­ing her won­der­ful recipes.

With­out fuss or fan­fare, she has de­vel­oped her own home­wares range of cook­ing uten­sils and ac­ces­sories, her own food range, and even has her own Donna Hay Gen­eral Store in Syd­ney stock­ing all her lines.

She is Aus­tralia’s lead­ing food edi­tor and best-sell­ing cook­book au­thor, sell­ing more than four mil­lion copies world­wide.

Her sim­ple and styledriven ap­proach to food has set the bench­mark for food pub­lish­ing, and in­spired a new gen­er­a­tion of cooks.

Now – much against her ini­tial protests – TV pro­duc­ers among her le­gion of fans have fi­nally man­aged to per­suade her to front her o wn t e l e v i s i o n c o o ki ng show – and it starts tonight!

Donna Hay – Fast, Fresh, Sim­ple pre­mieres at 8.30pm tonight , and then ev­ery trav­el­ling around on the back of a ute or any­thing like that.

‘‘ It is eas­ier to ex­plain and show my tricks on a TV show than it is in a mag­a­zine, and I re­veal all the in­sider knowl­edge and tech­niques peo­ple want.’’

She said the se­ries fo­cused on recipes that peo­ple could cook at home, and was con­nected to her book of the same name, with ‘‘ fast’’ re­fer­ring to cook­ing fuss-free week­night din­ners; ‘‘ fresh’’ for Donna’s new take on t ra­di­tional recipes; and ‘ ‘ s i mpl e ’ ’ f o r t h e e a s y short­cuts us­ing fresh and store-bought in­gre­di­ents.

‘‘ I’m so ex­cited to be bring­ing the world of my books a nd mag­a­zine t o l i f e , ’ ’ Donna said.

‘‘ This show cap­tures my phi­los­o­phy on cook­ing – it’s about shar­ing my se­crets and show­ing you how to get all the flavour with­out the fuss.’’

pre­mier­ing at 8.30pm tonight and then ev­ery Tues­day night on AUS­TAR’s The Life­Style Chan­nel.
